If you are visiting Chicago and looking for a touchstone while you explore the city center attractions without spending a fortune, go for this one. Close to different attractions and with plenty metro and bus stops around. Staff we are all helpful and I got an upgrade to a massive King room after some problems with the initial room that... More

This hotel is nicely located between Willis Tower and Grant Park. We walked to Willis Tower and to the Field Museum. We took the water taxi from near the Aquarium to Navy Pier and then to Willis Tower (it also stops at Michigan Ave at the south end of the Magnificent Mile) for $6/person. There is also a Garretts Popcorn... More

I was very impressed by this hotel. The provided champagne and chocolate in the lobby each day. Not a whole lot of each but a very nice touch. Decor was nice. My room was bigger than what you generally get for a standard king room. The gym was nice with more equipment than usual and a very nice view. The... More

8/14 - Came to Chicago for business training for 2 days. Arrived at the Hotel Blake to find an absolute gem! From the unpretentious yet classy lobby to the gracious, fun loving staff, my 2 nights at the Hotel Blake were F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S! The hotel and my room were clean and the air was fresh smelling but not because someone emptied... More

We took a four day trip to Chicago, arriving by train from Port Huron, Michigan around noon. Fifteen minute walk from Union Station. Early check in was no problem. Staff very polite. Concierge gentlemen were extremely helpful. Quick breakfast nearby at Panera started the day off. The restaurants near the Blake meant we didn't have to go far after a... More

Upon arriving we were amazed at the proximity to Chicago's most sought after attractions. The check-in process was quick and simple, we were given a room on a lower floor than we may have thought we wanted, but upon arriving to our room we were delighted with impressively high ceilings and a perfect view of the Willis (Sears) Tower. Our... More

We came into Chicago for Lollapalooza 2014. We drove 10.5 hours to get to the hotel early enough on Friday for the show, which started at 11. I called two days ahead of time to ask about early check-in, and it was no problem at all when we arrived on Friday. I'm sure there were a lot of other people... More

I stayed in the Blake Hotel in July this year with my husband and 2 grown up children for 2 nights. The staff were very friendly and the hotel, whilst not the height of modern luxury, was perfect for its location and very reasonable price. It was very comfortable. Couldn't fault it. Compared with West Coast hotels - it was... More

The hotel is in a great location and the staff was very helpful. Showtime was outstanding. He went out of his way to help us get a dinner reservation. Hotel needs a facelift but can overlook for service and location.
